Big news! A cookbook by the Austin Food Blogger Alliance Cookbook (AFBA) is being published by The History Press in April. I’ve been a member of AFBA since it was founded in 2011, and I now serve as President on the Board of Directors, so this project is very special to me. The book features 70 recipes from bloggers all over Austin. Each blogger who submitted a recipe helped to edit and test other recipes in the book, so this collection is full of proven crowd favorites. The photos were either submitted by bloggers, or taken by professional photographers in AFBA.
My recipe for Roasted Brussels Sprouts, inspired by Paul Qui, will be featured in the book. There’s even a photo of my dish on the back cover! Please consider buying a copy of the book (or four) from the Austin Food Blogger Alliance during our pre-sale period. Each copy is $25, and proceeds of the sales will further activities by AFBA. (We’re a real nonprofit– last year we raised $6,000 for Bake A Wish, hosted educational events, and performed lots of community outreach. All on an operating budget so tiny it’s cute!)
As if all this hype isn’t enticing enough, check out how GORGEOUS this book is. My friend Maggie’s Peach Gallette is on the cover.
What are you waiting for? Go grab a copy. We’ll be preselling the book for just a few more days. After that, it will be on sale at Amazon and lots of other places books are sold.
